Academic Life

The Sixth Form is an important stage in a student’s education. Students can choose their own curriculum, select subjects which match their own interests and abilities and take charge of their own studies. The Sixth Form is a crucial point of transition to higher education, adult life and employment. The emphasis must be, therefore, on learning rather than on teaching, and on independent study and research. 

A Level teaching is very different to what you will have experienced so far in your school career. Students are able to study the subjects which really interest them. We aim to be as flexible as possible, providing a wide range of A Level and AS Level subjects for study. We also offer a programme of life skills to ensure students are prepared for life beyond school including a cookery course for university. Class sizes are small which enable students to gain extensive personal attention from teachers who will both guide and encourage them throughout their studies. Academic study is enriched by attending conferences and study trips. Sherrardswood Sixth Formers consistently achieve a 100% pass rate in their A-Levels, with many pupils attaining grades which open doors to some of the best Universities in the country. While we are justifiably proud of our exam success, it is how successful students are in relation to their own potential that gives us our greatest pleasure.
